Difficult 19 year old son

Tracey - posted on 05/03/2015 ( 3 moms have responded )




My son has lost his job, got arrested with drugs, then a few other charges over the last couple of months for affray. He goes out until his curfew at 8pm (made by the courts). Uses fowl language when he doesn't get his on way. His lawyer has almost sent me broke. The son doesn't give a damn. Just treats me like crap. Goes to court tomorrow, not sure if going to jail on on good behaviour bond. Any suggestions.

I agree with Jodi, time for some tough love. If he thinks you will pay for everything then why should he get a job and support himself?

Why are you paying for his lawyer? It sounds to me like you are enabling his actions by continuing to support him and allowing him to live in your home. As bad is it may be, he is not going to learn his lesson as long as you keep paying for his court costs, putting a roof over his head and allowing him to treat you like this in your home. It may be tough love, but maybe a little jail time will wake him up.
